Few eras of NBA basketball can compare to the ultra-competitive showdowns that went down in the 90s, and during this time period, legends like MJ and Scottie Pippen instantly became idolised for their skills and fashion sensibilities. For Pippen, the Nike AMU was a consistent go-to for the two-way forward, and it’s now being highlighted by the Swoosh once again through a new colour way entitled the “Renowned Rhythm” — a namesake procured and inspired by #33’s capabilities of playing with both aggression and grace.
The color execution on these retro basketball kicks are emblematic of the Chicago Bulls — the very franchise that Pippen won six championships with. A pristine theme is shown through white perforated leathers and to form the side paneling as well as the nylon tongues. Oversized AIR lettering — a design element signature to this silhouette — also comes primarily presented in white, while its borders offset with “Varsity Red”. More “Varsity Red” hits disperse to the embroidered checks that are lie on the tongues and forefoot, in addition to the puffed up Swooshes on the heels.
